STOP Taking Vitamin D (Unless You’re Doing THIS)
Vitamin D is the darling of the medical world these days.
It’s practically in the news every day, and you’ve probably heard a thousand times that we’re not getting enough.
But taking just vitamin D is only half the story.
In fact, if you’re taking it the wrong way, you could be doing yourself a lot of harm.
Let me show you the right… and only… way we should be taking vitamin D.
First, the good news.
Vitamin D helps fight many degenerative diseases: heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and almost all inflammatory conditions.
And it appears to help autoimmune disease and even brain conditions.
Plus, about 95% of us are deficient–we don’t get enough vitamin D.
The reasons are simple: we don’t eat enough foods which contain vitamin D and we are indoors all the time (vitamin D is created in our bodies when sunlight hits our skin).
There is another good reason to take vitamin D: it helps you absorb calcium.
That might sound like its good news, but it depends… on vitamin K.
Pulling calcium from your food is a good idea. Your bones and nerves need calcium to function properly.
But what happens when you pull calcium from your food, but then don’t tell it where to go?
Calcium in your blood is not the goal because if calcium builds up in your blood, it deposits in places where you don’t want it. High blood calcium leads to kidney stones and heart disease (calcium is part of the build-up that blocks arteries, causing heart attacks).
So, how do you take calcium out of the blood and put it where it belongs (in the bones)?
Simple, you need vitamin K.
But guess what? Ninety-five percent of us aren’t getting enough vitamin K either. That is because vitamin K shows up in foods like leafy green vegetables (and most of us don’t eat enough of those).
It is absolutely critical that you balance vitamin K and vitamin D whenever you are taking them.
I recommend that you get tested for vitamin D next time you are at the doctor (it’s now a common test) and then take enough to normalize your levels. But, you also need to take vitamin K at the same time (there is no easy test for vitamin K–just assume you are low).
Make sure you follow up your test after taking vitamin D and vitamin K for a few months.
And if you are on anticoagulants (blood thinners) then work with your doctor to add vitamin K to your diet. Don’t do it alone.

P.S. A good way to get both vitamins D and K is through a product called D3+K2 from my partners at Gold Leaf Nutritionals. To learn more, click here.
